So Long, Wee Memories!


I'm really sad to see the Wee Memories challenges coming to an end although I understand Jenny's reasons for making the decision.  Wee Memories holds a special place in my heart as it's the first challenge that I ever placed in!  My ribbon flower was chosen as one of the Fab 4 last January.  I was so excited to finally add a challenge blinkie to my sidebar.  :)  Anyway, the final challenge is a sketch challenge which almost sent me running in the other direction but I was determined to suck up my sketch fear and not miss out on this special event.  I didn't really think about this before but I guess it's kind of appropriate to have made a sympathy card for the passing of the challenge!  And look at all that patterned paper up there!  It's from Basic Grey's Origins collection - yes, I have a lot of oldie goldies in my stash...  The stamps are Hero Arts.  My thanks to Jenny and the design team for all the fabulous challenges and inspiration and I look forward to seeing what comes next for you all!  :)

Beautiful take on the sketch - they scare me too :) Never feel very confident with them.
Origins is one of my favourites - love how you used the different gridded papers, and the scalloped edge is fab.

It's always sad when something comes to an end - perhaps you should start a new one! I love the way you've used lots of the same design DP in different colours.
